Are fresh eggs really better?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

My little brother is doing a experiment on fresh, organic, homemade foods vs. store bought processed food.  That I means I get to peel 6 eggs that I hardboiled after they were laid today.   Wish me luck?

Steaming them can make peeling easier - even with very fresh eggs.

What characteristics is he going to compare to determine if they are better/worse?

Where are we going, and why are we in this hand basket?

He's doing 2 sets of deviled eggs. One will be completely processed and store bought, the other set will be organic, homemade ingredients, so homemade mustard, pickles, mayonnaise, and eggs from my hens. Then he has 24 people tasting one of each egg blindfolded and guessing which one is organic and which is store brought ingredients.

@ Jaromo 99

depending on how the deviling is done it can mask some of the egg

flavor it might be truer to just half the egg offering water between

almost like a wine tasting jmho

The point is all organic vs. store bought ingredients, not just eggs. This is his project, I'm just assisting him in making the food.

I would still suggest the old adage less is better

His science fair was Thursday.  He didn't win anything, but it was still good.  The organic eggs only won by 4 votes!
